First dance songs are a big part of your day, and will be "your song" after. How did you choose it? Does it have specific meaning to you or your partner or both? If you haven't picked one yet, do you have any already in mind?
We were going through a few songs from Michael Bolton, however, my husband wanted an upbeat song. He found one that was slow and had an idea for the upbeat, so we wanted the mashup but it did not work out well when we listened to it. So we danced the flow one — Slowly by Meddy. Then later at the party time, we danced to the upbeat song - Un coup Fally Ipupa ft Dadju (since he’s Congolese song and he’s Congolese). 😁
I always thought I wanted to dance to Book of Love by Peter Gabriel but in the past few years my fiance and I both became fans if Ben Folds and one song in particular speaks to us (makes me cry), it's called The Luckiest, and this store of song suits us both. We're going to use Book of Love as our song for walking down the aisle instead.
We felt that the song should be applicable to us and make us feel something. We choose biblical by calum Scott. If you YouTube first dance songs or google it, a bunch will come up, take a listen and see if any of them speak to you. Then go from there! Good luck!
We originally picked "Yours" by Russel Dickerson to be our song we love country music and we both really loved the song but then the song "Forever After All" by Luke Combs released and we both LOVE him and so we decided that that would be our song!

What about Disturbed's cover of the sound of silence? It's really not as sad as it seems. The original was written by Paul Simon and is about cutting off all distractions to be able to write. After some rewrites.... 'Garfunkel, introducing the song at a live performance (with Simon) in Harlem, June 1966, summed up the song's meaning as "the inability of people to communicate with each other, not particularly intentionally but especially emotionally, so what you see around you are people unable to love each other."

Our song is 11:11 by the Arkells for a number of reasons. Although it’s not a typical first dance song I really wanted to go with it and my fiancé agreed because it’s a special song for us. Sometimes I get cold feet because it’s not a song about an established relationship and I worry that could be perceived as weird, but ultimately it is a love song that we love together so it will be our first dance song
This is a tough one for us, as we don't have a "song" and our music style is not of the loving ballads (we listen to metal and punk) style typically.
That being said, I have been thinking ALOT about a song we could dance to, that is still US while not scaring our family away. I have a couple more slower songs that might work. I really just don't want to pick a song that doesn't have much meaning to us, ya know?
I gave my wife a list of five songs that I narrowed down for her to choose, including one Chinese duet option. All the options were duets because I liked the idea of having both a male and female voice for our first song. In the end, she picked (I Wanna Take) Forever Tonight by Peter Cetera and Crystal Bernard.
I found one in a random instagram post. Played it for SO and he started crying, the lyrics are perfect for our relationship.
Still have to see if our DJ can get it as it's an independent artist, so I don't want to post about it and jinx it.
"Our song" is You & Me from Lifehouse. It's the first time we danced while at a karaoke bar, though it didn't feel right for our first dance song as we've played it at every cast party and karaoke bar over 8 years. Needed something new and special.
My fiance also picked ours. "Our song" wouldn't feel right for our first dance but he almost right away thought of George Strait's Carried Away. He is a country boy at heart and wanted a classic, not something popular right now and we'll forget about down the road. It was perfect. We also broke into Cotton Eyed Joe at the end because I'm known for doing the dance at any and every event I can 🤣. I had to teach it to my husband but he couldn't keep up. It was a hit.
My Fiancé suggested then by Brad Paisley. I listened to it and agreed it would be the perfect first dance song. Basically if my Fiancé suggests something, I usually go with it because I want him to have as much say as possible
